Pakistan Introduction

     Pakistan is a Muslim nation in southern Asia. The country's official name is the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. About 97 per cent of its people practise Islam, the Muslim religion.

         Religion was the chief reason for the establishment of Pakistan as an independent nation.

A Short Background

The separation in 1947 of British India into the Muslim state of Pakistan (with two sections West and East) and largely Hindu India was never satisfactorily resolved.

A third war between these countries in 1971 resulted in East Pakistan seceding and becoming the separate nation of Bangladesh. A dispute over the state of Kashmir is ongoing. In response to Indian nuclear weapons testing, Pakistan conducted its own tests in 1998.
